    When you recontract, you may need to top up 200-300 for a samsung/SE phone, but the iPhone4 is free, even if it actually costs more. So it's a no-brainer to get the iPhone4 instead.
    Well there you go- four battles being fought. The fourth is marketing.

    And we know NOBODY beats Apple at Marketing. They are the Canon+Nikon of mobile phones..

    Ah, the benefit of releasing products on a fixed schedule, and at the right time (not too infrequently to annoy, not too frequently to lose customers). Consumers basically know by now, "save up every Sept or Oct, a new Apple product will be coming that you want."

    The iPhone 4S :
    Low light sensitivity
    8MP
    AUTOFOCUS
    Tap to manually Focus
    HDR
    1080p HD Video
    Video stabilisation.
    A5 chip
    IOS5
    Face sensing in portraits
    Now you can open the Camera app right from the Lock screen. So when things happen fast, you’ll capture them fast.
    Edit photo on phone.
    Photo streaming.
    Custom lens uses five precision elements.
    Larger f/2.4 aperture.
    Advanced hybrid infrared filter keeps out IR light.

    There was an app that would let you do that. Then Apple banned it from the app store for "violating our usability terms". Now they "innovated" the feature themselves...

    While that sounds great on the marketing brochure it's not necessarily a good thing.

    Nvr like andriod, too sluggish and the OS is too fragmented and vulnerable to a lot more virus and attack than IOS. Apple may be slow in giving features, at least when they do its stable and do you realize their users experience with each features is enjoyable? Thats something most companies couldn't give to its customer. Yea, sure, Android users had all these features long before IOS. But, the users experience is somewhat... lacking.

    Did apple just said the lens is designed by them? Maybe they should revolutionize DSLR and create iDslr!

    Huh??? LOL!!!!

    1. My android phones have all been much faster/responsive than the iPhone4 my company gave me.
    2. iOS is a wide open mess for viruses, etc. You think iOS is safe??? LOL!!!! iOS is always the first to fall in any vulnerability test.
    3. User experience? You mean, you don't like that you can change the complete UI of android to suit your wishes, which iOS won't let you? If the iOS experience was so enjoyable, they would not have been jailbroken from day 1 - and here's a big hint, the jailbreaks make use of the HORRIBLE security and vulnerability in the iOS system.
    4. It's not hard to design a small lens like that. So it's hardly any "engineering feat", most cellphone makers have been doing that since cameraphones were invented.

    Talk about being brainwashed...

    +1 to that...

    The real deal breaker is when iPhone 5 will be release, maybe it wow will users again...
    But for now Nexus Prime looks more exciting...

    1) Speed. There is "faster so that it makes a difference", and there is "faster but it doesn't make a difference because the iPhone is fast enough".

    2) I personally have not had any viruses on my iPhone, and I'm guessing most people have a similar experience. Provided you went the 'dumbed-down' route and didn't jailbreak, that is.

    3) Some people like customisability, some people like simplicity. I can tell you that having been involved in design, there is a big group of people who prefer simplicity over customisability. That's why Angry Birds is the top selling game on the iPhone, for instance. The iPhone's audience is not the type who like full-fledged Linux do-it-yourself level of complexity. Go look at how many jailbroken iPhones exist vs how many non-jailbroken iPhones exist. In 2009, only 6.7% jailbroke their iPhones (http://appscout.pcmag.com/apple/2726...are-jailbroken). Today, the number is probably smaller as the tech-savvy users migrate to the Android, and more casual users pick up the iPhone.

    4) Sure, it's not hard to design such a lens. But most people probably don't care, all they hear is "the new iPhone has a super-awesome new camera, to go with everything else that was super-awesome about it before".

    1) So sorry, used galaxy S before and its not faster than iphone4
    2) No virus for me so far, but, read lots of report about Android system being attack by virus due to the "openess"
    3) I prefer simple and easy to use phone. Dont need to customize it like how a ah beng will do it to their subaru.
    4)That was just for fun, take a chill pill.

    Brainwashed? I could say the same back to you xD

    You mean a lot of Android users have viruses?

    I don't mean that. I just meant there has been no problems for me.

    Besides, I doubt "no viruses" will be listed within the top 5 drivers for the market segments whom Apple and the Android makers are primarily targeting.

    I do not understand all the artificial "hysteria" over the iPhone.

    For your info:
    All parts together cost about 85€ (120U$)
    Assembly take place in China and cost about 3,60€ (5U$) per iPhone.

    Apple selling price = 650€ ( 880U$)
    (exch. €/U$ 1.40)

    The worker in China get paid a pittance and are used by Apple extremely exploited!!!!
